I made a 4x2x3 NIC cube condo for our new bunny with 3 levels. The bottom level is sitting on top of a rug and the other 2 levels are wood. What should I put on the floor of the 2 upper levels with to make them comfortable and inviting for our bun? So far he hasn't ventured up to the other levels. Should I use towels? fleece? carpet? How do I attach it to the wood?

Thanks for any input. I can post pictures too if that would help.

I used stick on linoleum for my condo. Other people use tiles or carpet. Stick on tiles work and stick on linoleum does too. Not sure how you would apply carpet, though.

I used linoleum like Amy. I do have a towel on one of Skipper's levels so she has a soft place to be. I tried a plushy blanket but since she's been spraying because she's not fixed it's just a hassle to keep washing the same blanket and it's easier to wash towels. I would take into account of your bun's litter habits. If he/she likes to spray it's easier to clean linoleum and a towel or blanket can always be placed on top.

I took carpet and wraped it around the edges  and stapeled it to the underside of the wood on mine, I tried the linoleum but my buns just tore it right up!!

I used those peel 'n stick vinyl tiles for the flooring of Frankie's condo. They're really cheap and you can find them at Home Depot, Menards, etc. It makes cleaning up messes (especially urine) really fast and easy :-)

I have a NIC floor with peg board zipped tied on top. I checked those linoleum tiles but they just seemed to add more weight. I was wondering if anyone thought adhesive contact paper was a good idea. This is what I'm getting http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000K...63&sr=8-1. I figure I can lay it over the pegboard and poke the holes in it so I still get to use the zip ties. I do this because I dot quite have the tools or space to cut wood to make a legitimate platform like I've seen folks do here.
